Fire Ecology & Recovery
Special Focus
Easy: 3-4 miles | some elev. gain

U.S. Forest Service Biological Science Technician Kate Santini will lead us on the Herman Creek trail, through an area that was affected by last year’s Eagle Creek fire to view evidence of the fire’s burn mosaics while learning about the effects of fire and wildlife habitat over time. We’ll cover basic fire terminology, fire hazards on the trail, and things to consider when hiking in a post-burn area.

Note: we'll be traveling in the Mark O. Hatfield Wilderness area so the group size is limited to a maximum of 12.

A duplicate outing is scheduled for Saturday, October 13.
